More Than a Conqueror

The world makes a conqueror seem like one who is puffed up and strong. One who speaks their mind and doesn’t care if they’re wrong.  One who doesn’t think twice about addressing someone who’s stepped on their toes, and who doesn’t consider the feelings of others, nor is concerned about their woes.  The over-achievers, who won’t take no for an answer; They’ll step on anyone if it means they’ll go higher. Saying sorry is for chumps, just move on and forget about it.  These are the conquerors that the world so admires.

And then there are those, who’s kindness is looked at as weakness.  They cover up their strengths to not appear too self-confident. They hide behind the limelight.  They choose to not say how they feel. They get stepped on and overlooked, and who cares how they feel.  They welcome the uncomfortable to keep others at ease.  A conqueror? These people? Who would believe; that people so humble can be one to achieve.

But, a conqueror to God is not attained through the flesh; “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord” Zechariah 4:6.

The bible says that “… the Spirit helps us in our weakness” Romans 8:26 NIV. “And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.” Romans 8:27 NIV.  “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12 NIV. “For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” Luke 14:11 NIV. “…And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8.

“… in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Romans 8:37 NIV.

So the question is asked,

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’ … For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35:-39 NIV.

Be Blessed.

G.M.
